question about not raising the debt ceiling. ultimately, we have to do that. and the second as we have to get our long-term fiscal house in order. that means we have to get the entitlement programs under control, achieving two goals. one, the reform is necessary to make sure they achieve the results we're heading which is protecting at risk populations while spending money so we can afford to spend, and no more. that are simple entitlement reforms straightforward. they have been well-vetted that this congress should adopt i believe fairly quickly. there may be legislatively complex, and these are the kind of reforms received my partisan support in the past. commonsense thing. it's frustrating in fact that we don't taken more seriously and move on them because they have profound impacts, where the problem really is. yes, we have a series problem with a trillion dollars budget deficit today but really largess that is the problem is dwarfed by our long run fiscal empowerment program. we know some of the basis reform, bipartisan reforms that can be enacted that will go a long way to getting m

d.c.. when senator obama voted against raising the debt ceiling, he said he was doing so because the national debt was at an outrageous $8 trillion. he clarified for a fact -- $8 trillion, trillion with a 't'. now our national debt is over $16 trillion and climbing, larger than our tire economy and he is not a word about it at all. he calls a progress. his campaign slogan said it is forward. i've got news for the president, if washington's debt is going forward, america's economy is going backward. instead of worrying about managing the economy, it is time to address how we can lead america out where she can once again become the land of opportunity and once again become a place of growth and opportunity. we should put all our eggs in that basket as conservatives and republicans. we certainly do need folks in washington, d.c. to devote themselves to stop as president from taking this country so far off the ledge that we can i get back. we must stop what is rapidly becoming the bankrupting of our federal government. we, as conservatives, must dedicate our energies endeavors to growing

thing with the debt ceiling. everything we do is temporary and this is especially with the gridlock between the republicans with a majority in the house and democrats in the senate. this doesn't, you know, excuse the president from sitting down and talking about the issues, but i don't feel that he's said, okay, these issues don't matter and i don't think they've been on the back burner, i think everyone is very clear with where the president stands as to what his ideas and the democratic philosophy is with regard to job creation, and what we need to do with the economy. the republicans are clear. congress needs to sit down and work this out. the president's not their baby sitter, not running a day care center and the american people need to make our congressional electorates and our senators that are elected, we need to make it known what we want. those are our priorities and by the way, heidi, yesterday, california lowest foreclosure rate in the month of january in years. and that's a step in the right direction, economically. >> megyn: go ahead, heidi. >> and a lot of those house

you can do gun control and immigration and the debt ceiling. guess what, we're paying these people, they have tons of staff, they can do more than one thing. the question is not do you have political capital, the issue is, do you have political courage? that's what you need to see more from politicians, courage, and not so concerned about whether or not they'll get re-elected. >> senator feinstein obviously saying it's an uphill battle, but she pointed to what the voters want. 54%, 44% do not support. obviously, by party, if you broke that down, it could be different. but, again, this question to you. if there is the will to do not a lot on guns, but something, is this the something? >> i think absolutely not. and i think it's really important that you noted that statistic early on. but another thing to note is a lot of the folks who answer that question don't necessarily know what an assault rifle is. these assault weapons are designed essentially by cosmetic features that the gun has, like the kind of grip that the gun has. these are not machine guns. assault weapons, you fire once, you fire one bullet. machine guns have

says, how do you run a country with debt-ceiling debacles, fiscal cliffs with no decisions being made? and so it's a little bit like that old line, i didn't leave my heart. my party left me. i think a lot of big businessmen feel republicans have just gone a little bit crazy, and they are sort of now a group without a home because they're not democrats either. but it's another problem area for republicans. >> you saw that during the fiscal cliff. you know, when you had this parade of these big ceos going down to washington, more engaged arguably than any time in the last several years, but yet it didn't really have an impact at all. and i think part of that is because their message was, you've got to compromise, but part of that is because they weren't really saying anything specifically. they weren't hyper-engaged in a way they were calling them up and said there's what you have to compromise on. it was appealing to the mass populous. >> that group which i'm involved with left really disappointed/disgusted with what goes on in washington. >> as we all were. >> right. >> and that'

block it. but let me be a little opt mystic here. i do think there are republicans who do know that the substance matters here. the republicans knew they couldn't fight president obama on the debt ceiling. they should have just extended it sbeerly. i think there are some republicans who learned some lessons who broke with the party to vote with aid for the victims of hurricane sandy. so i think this sort of meeting is sort of the top line of people wanting to say it's just organization. but i think below that, there are republicans who know their problems run deeper. >> i don't doubt that, but i think that the bad signal is, for example, how are you going to say you're going to have change re-elect the same chairman in reince priebus, who we learned this week, had clint east wo east's empty chair in his office. to have that as some symbol that you want to recognize other than if you use an example to show how you lost an election, how dumb we could be. i mean, what -- can you re-e lek elect this guy's chair? >> look, we are in a two-party system. but the parties recon fizz your them

debacle that we just went through at the end of the year. now this extension of the debt ceiling free or four months. the economy cannot withstand at this point. >> well, that is one of the biggest problems. >> definitely not optimal. cheryl: exactly. you're right. what do you say? >> it is one of the biggest problems we have had in the economy, investors like certainty. they want to know what their tax rate will be, what their credit rating agencies are going to do. delicate washington and scratch their heads because they're not getting much certainty. the only certainty they have gotten is the fact that their taxes are going up astronomically. and a lot of business people across the country are hoping that would be coupled with a lot of spending restraint so that we would not give further downgraded by the credit rating agencies and that we could actually get ourselves on a glide path toward a balanced budget. you have to give paul ryan a lot of credit. both of your guests are doing that by saying he is at least putting a plan out. harry reid is not put a plan out for four years. talk about breaking the regular budget order, i agree. the need to put a plan out and we need to get together and figure out how to give some certainty for businesses. cheryl: ta

are solving one by one the issues of the day, the debt ceiling, the rhetoric around fiscal cliff, we clearly need to put all that to bed. but then we go after the reforms that matter, energy policy being a clear one with climate change attached. how we get tax reform in place to make americans and american corporations competitive again, globally. big thing for dow chemical. we want to reinvest in america because we can be competitive out of america. that agenda has to be put on the national agenda. i know the second term president is very keen on doing that. liz: the first term president was accused of being anti-business or not as friendly to business even though he brought a lot of business leaders to the white house and listened to them. many of them sat here and said you know what liz, though, he listened but i didn't see anything effectuated. do you think it's a different time now with president obama? >> i'm very fortunate that i was one of the ones that was called upon very early to help first term president obama. you've got to understand where he's coming from and his agend

by any means. i think not making the fight about the debt ceiling, which has the unfortunate downside that if you mess it up, the u.s. government defaults, and it's a financial catastrophe, this was a sign of maturity. i think on the republicans' part that let's make it about the budget. so the budget is now going to come to so-called continuing resolution. they're going to have to have a fight about a government shutdown. this is what they should be arguing about. what does the government spend money on? what should it spend money on? how much revenue should be coming in? let's make the argument about that, not about whether the government should default. >> you just -- >> -- i agree with him. >> no, i -- i just think everybody's too -- i mean the question i would ask austan i know we're going to break but i'd ask austan people are very bearish on growth. what if they're wrong and trend growth isn't 1.5 to 2, it's 2.5 to 3 or 3.5 to 4. what does that do to this discussion? >> thanks. we are -- >> i think people are going to be surprised. >> let's pick up on that note. richar

thought he had the republicans over a barrel with the debt ceiling coming up with no time to announce any long-term balance budget framework or any kind of structural reforms to heanlt retirement programs. we had the short-term extension to give each chamber to go through order and pass a budget in our house. obviously, paul ryan and his team will work through, i think even a bolder budget to send to the senate. the senate and the president might not accept the bill we passed. but in fact, they are going to pass the bill and the president is going to sign it. as speaker boehner said, this is something the house should continue to do. we are in the opposition but we're in the majority but as the opposition we should take the opportunity to paint bold principles and stand by those and then we can campaign on those in the next two years. >> so, tom, you are a conservative. did you become conservative at some point, are you a natural born conservative? >> right from the beginning. i grew up in a very small town. my parents were not political at all. my father would not put up a yard sign unti
